POSSIBLE USES OF RED HYBRYD OF CALIFORNIA (EISENIA FOETIDA SAV.) FOR INDUSTRIAL ORGANIC WASTES UTILIZATION
Malgorzata Anna Jóźwiak, Przemysław Rybiński
Used tyres are one of the most significant environmental problems in the world. One of the method of utilization is the use of ground material from tyres to harden and supplement the hard shoulders of the reads.
Mixing the rubber in such a from with the soil leads to soil pollution which has a negative influence on plants and soil organism (Gondek, Filipek-Mazur 1999).
This negative influence stems from the chemical composition of the tyres. This mixture consists of rubber, different fillings mainly soot on the surface of which there is some amount of PAH, netted substances which belong to toxic, irritant substances and hardening substances for example: paraffin oil or kerosene oil.
They migrate on the surface of rubber products while they are being stored, and then easily get into the surface water or into the soil causing for pollution.
In the article bioutilization of the tyre material with the use of Red hybrid of California is presented. This method consists in creating vermicompost and putting a definite number of Red hybryd of California into it, preparing rubber mixture of ground tyre material which is added into the vermicompost during defferent trails.
